Do you remember when you found out you were pregnant? If you were like me, you were overwhelmed with all the products out there and you started researching to find out the best for you and your baby. Breast Pumps, diapers, toys, clothes, lotions, baby carriers and so much more. So much to look at and learn about and it is constantly changing. What is the "best" out there today might not even be in production a year or two down the road!
You know I like to ramble, so let me move along... The registry is being made and you need to decide what is best for you. Did you know that there are many different breast pumps out there? You and I both know you want the best portable breast pump for you to use. Let me go ahead and throw this out there, I am not here to judge you if you breast feed or not. I know that there are some people out there that give you the stink eye if you don't breast feed. I also know that some people try to breast feed and it doesn't work. (I also know of others that breast feed their children way past an age that I think is appropriate to be breast feeding. I am not here to judge your situation, I am here to tell you that there are options out there.)
Okay, so now that we know I am not here to judge...
Like I said, you have been thinking about breastfeeding and yes, it can be overwhelming too. If you want more information about breastfeeding, click the link provided and it will take you to a great article over at womens health. I know that some women try to breastfeed and have a hard time and they end up pumping and giving the baby bottles. I know some that breastfeed and then have bottles available for others to get to help in feeding. You need to adjust your situation to what it best for you and your baby, no one else can make that decision for you! Do not feel overwhelmed when it comes time to think about pumping and storing the milk, there are great resources online to help you figure it out and if you look up online, I am sure you can find places in your town that have people available to help. Ask your doctor if you need to, they can also help point you in the right direction.
Now that my younger cousin is expecting TWIN baby girls in 2017, it is time to look and see what all has changed since Broxton and Savannah were born. We all know that each year they come out with a newer product, so its time to do more research. I know it can be overwhelming, but the internet is full of great articles to help you make the best decision for you and your family. Hope this article helped let you know that it is okay, whatever you decide to do!
Now, on to the fun part. Remember how I said no judging and the post title said there was a giveaway??? Well here you go. Leave me a comment telling me any funny breast feeding stories you might have heard or personally dealt with. Fill out the rafflecopter form and you are good to go!
Want to hear my "funny story?"
I was having a hard time getting Savannah to latch on at the hospital. The nurse came in with the breast pump from the hospital to try and get some in a bottle for her. Still, not much luck. So, she came over to me and said you just might not have any milk yet. At that point she lifted my boob up to try and work with it and the breast pump and milk shot ACROSS THE ROOM. Like, hard hitting ACROSS - THE - WHOLE- ROOM!!!!! (If you can, imagine one of those water gun games at the fair where you shoot it and it makes the guy move and then you are the winner... yeah, it was like that... but with breast milk across the hospital room!) So, do you have any stories you have heard or experienced? Again, no judging, just here to share that we all have our own experiences in life that make up the whole picture! Good luck on the giveaway!
